About VT Engage
Experience Ut Prosim
Our vision is to equip civic leaders to create a more just world.
Our mission is to facilitate leadership, service learning, and civic engagement experiences that advance community priorities, contribute to student development, and embody Ut Prosim (That I May Serve.)
Our core values shape our approach to our work and the experiences we facilitate with campus and community partners.
We commit to incorporating anti-racist and decolonization principles into our daily work and into all our experiences. We seek to make our experiences as affordable and accessible as possible to all participants.
We develop and maintain mutually beneficial partnerships with community and campus partners that advance community-identified priorities through ethical and sustainable action.
We engage leaders in identity development as they explore their role in contributing to positive social change. We help leaders understand the complex social issues and systems that create societal inequities.
We support and create scholarship that contributes to the areas of leadership, service learning, and civic engagement. We develop and fund work in these areas and serve as a connection point between community and campus partners.
